It is a nice hotel, and the staff is really friendly and concern about customer needs. It is far from Vienna center, though. It is not really a proper hotel to go if you are using public transportation, since I had to take subway, train, bus and walk about 200m from the bus stop to get there. If you go by car, the surrondings are certenly amazing.

Although Wien is a quiet and clean city, if you go to Sophienalpe, which is surrounded by trees, you will find the real peacefulness. I recommend this hotel for the one who like the nature and for the people who travel by car. I think when I come to Wien again I choose Sophienalpe again.

The hotel was realy ok. Personel was friendly, food was great. Room standard was acceptable but nothing special. Bathtube was poor quality. Surroundings are amazing. In my opinion 70 euros for double room in this standard was little to much (should be max 55).

Il posto è magnifico specialmente adesso in autunno si arriva all'Hotel circondati da un bosco splendido di colori. La camera è stata un pò una delusione perchè l'hotel è come dire un pò trascurato, e specialmente in Austria dove si è abituati all'eccellenza questo stride un pochino. Avrebbe bisogno di una bella ristrutturazione. Ripeto il posto è magnifico, non per niente era la residenza estiva dell'Imperatrice Sofia (suggerisco alla propietà di calcare la mano su questo fatto)ed è anche abbastanza vicino al centro di Vienna, ben servito dai servizi pubblici. Tutto sommato una bellissima anche se corta vacanza

Hotel in ruhiger Gegend aber eben auch ausserhalb, d.h man braucht ca 35 Minuten bis in die Stadtmitte. Sanitäre Einrichtungen aus dem 60er od 70er, auch Möbel ziemlich alt! Frühstuck und Essen in Ordnung aber nicht besonderes. Ingesamt war der Preis mit 70€/Doppelzimmer einfach zu hoch! Für 50 Euro angemessen.

This was once a great hotel. Large, with large rooms, big dinning area, and big outdoor garden for eating. But it is now worn out. Rust,broken bathroom fixtures, smelling of old smoke, and grease, made this stay unpleasant. My review is not a good one, mainly because the price was too high for the reasons mentioned. Also we were reling on laundry and they said no, they do not have it. Well yes they do, but it was very dirty, they did not want there guests to see, I belive. I love Venere, and am looking forward to booking with you in the future. Please look into this futher if posiable. I could not recomend Sophienalpe. Cheers Annette Weeks

I was in Vienna for holidays, the hotel surrondings are wonderful, there are many routes within the forest and is a place quite and peaceful, is the perfect place to take a rest before the weekend in the city.

Big complex destinated just for groups. The old house is quiet pretty but needs immediately a total refurbishment. It was supossed to be the best place in our whole trip (the only 3 star hotel), it was almost the worst. I'd give maximum 1 star. Quality and the choice of food in the breakfast - tragical! The best aspect - very beautiful and quiet surroundings (just nature - forests, fields, paths just for walkers).

Be prepared for a long drive up a steep, winding mountain road to reach this hotel; not exactly conveniently located for Vienna sightseeing! The plumbing was old and the shower attachment on our bathtub didn't work. But the staff was very good about leaving us a breakfast the night before when we had to check out at 5 am. The hotel restaurant (where you will want to eat unless you are prepared for the very long trip down to Vienna) is excellent with a specialty of wild game.

I asked for a family room (four beds). The matrimonial bed was done with a sofa bed, extremely uncomfortable. The quality/price ratio was very poor, compared to the other hotels I tried in my trip around Europe (Lyon, Paris, Prahe, Wien). The building and surrounding are very nice, but the maintenance level, in my opinion, is not adequate.

The hotel is very nice, and employees are friendly. Breakfast was fabulous. Price/quality is great. But you have to realize that the hotel is literally is in the forest, high in the mountains - 10 min. car ride to the closest tram station. There is nothing but mountain bike and hiking trails around (even though, it's beautiful). Very hard to find - directions on their web cite make you think it's easy - don't be fooled. They definetely need better directions and a map.

The rooms were fairly basic but clean and more than adequate. Staff were welcoming. Breakfasts not a great selection but sufficient to get you by. The property is set in a beautiful and peaceful location in the Vienna Woods. If travelling into Vienna it is 10-15 kms to tram station (free parking nearby) then a 20 min tram ride. I would stay here again and would recommend.
